I'm the Student Ministry Director at Lincoln Christian Church in Lincoln, IL. I love teaching Jr. High and High School Students how to become curious discerning disciples of Jesus. My goal is to equip students with the tools they need to journey with Christ and to be His Kingdom Workers for the rest of their lives. I'm married to my high school sweetheart Betsy.
